That'd be nice.
They'd still be using Ford motors I hope...

No, I believe they had a contract with Ford for some of their engines if I'm not mistaken...

Done some research just now (I knew TVR stuck V8 AC Cobra lumps in their cars a while back, but that's it), and saw that they put the Ford Zodiac V6 engine in the cars in the late 60s

i agree with that! they used the ford v8's, then went on to 6cyl's, then the reincarnation of the v8 they used were Rover V8's then went back onto straight 6's which were in house developed!
but apparently theyll get back to using V8's on the basis of thier own AJP V8 which was planned to go into the Cerbera Speed8 but development took longer than expected!
i suppose theyll use the Ford engines in america as the current ones dont really match up to the USA's qualifications
